This is a great toprope to do after shooting up Shiva's Dance (which is 10 ft to the R), although there would be a bit of a pendulum if you came off. Leading this would be as fast as toproping it, as there would be none of that pesky pro to put in...'cause it's just not there!
The beginning has 2 cracks--a thin one (left) and a more flake-y one (right). The original FA intention, I assume, is to only use the thin one. Very cool, thoughtful moves. Stay in the crack until you HAVE to cut right onto the face...it's more fun that way.
The bolts on the face immediately R of Skink's have ...been removed? ...were never there? That's a good detail to know, in case you wanted to locate it by them. This seems to be true of a few climbs in this area. Have fun!

|Maybe you only climb the left crack, as per the comment above, but even eschewing the right one, there is still protection. The route is really no more so runout than 'The Offset' I don't think, and so it's probably 'R' not 'X'. In fact, I think the hardest move is closer to gear, and the crux shorter, though yeah, is a tiny bit harder.|
